A medium weight track is a great all-rounder in the curtain world. Capable of handling most domestic installations, this track is substantial enough to support your curtains yet discreate enough to not dominate a window - after all, it's best to let your curtains do the talking and not the track! This track can hold up to 6kg of curtain weight for up to three metres.
Medium Weight Curtain Track Technical Details
The Medium Weight Curtain Track is a hand-drawn aluminum curtain track which is white powder-coated. It holds gliders which are supplied at 16 per metre.
The track is 30mm high from the top of the track to the glider, and so deduct this measurement when working out the drop of your curtains.
The track and the bracket combined protrudes 41mmm from the surface it is fixed to.
Installing a Medium Weight Hand Drawn
With the Medium Weight Hand Drawn curtain track has the option to be top fixed or face fixed. To top fix the track means to attach it to the ceiling or top of the recess, whereas a face fix means to attach the track to the wall.
Click the brackets on to the track, spaced 600mm apart, and no further than 100mm from either end.
To top fix this track, raise the track into the desired position and fix it to the ceiling using appropriate screws. If you're planning on face fixing this track, hold the track in place whilst you mark where to drill for the brackets. Drill the holes, insert the raw plugs and then screw the bracket into place. See below for how to fix your brackets according to whether it is face fix or top fix.
For face fix blinds, once the bracket is in place, close up the hatch on the bracket, covering the screwhead. Click the track into place and secure it with appropriate screws.
Measuring Curtain Tracks
We’ve made it super easy – just supply us with the width that you wish the track to be and enter it into our website. There are no brackets on the end of our track so we do not need to make any deductions to the track to make it fit. The width measurement you supply is the width that the track will be made to.
We recommend using a metal tape measure to ensure accuracy. For cord drawn tracks please measure the distance from the floor up to where the track will be fitted (this is called the Install Height) so that we are able to ensure the cord will be made to the correct length and in keeping with child safety regulations whilst still be in reach for adults.
